Archive Additions

Postby Peter Butterfield » Sun 26 Jun 2016 8:12 pm

RA is grateful to Mr Greg Playdon who recently provided a copy of his extensive repository of Australian retrieving records for archiving. Over coming months we will add much of this material to this site for readers to view and enjoy for all time.

To start the ball rolling we have uploaded 3 historically significant videos which I highly recommend viewing to get an appreciation of how our predecessors conducted this sport. Follow these links to view these on Youtube.

NSW Retrieving Trials 1959-1960s Nostalgic footage of several Gundog Retrieving Trials conducted in New South Wales in 1959 and the early 1960s.

1st Australian National Retrieving Trial Championship 1969 Footage of the 1st National Retrieving Trial Championship held at Yarramundi NSW 18-19 Oct 1969.

2nd Australian National Retrieving Trial Championship 1971 Footage of the 2nd National Retrieving Trial Championship held at Ferndale in Western Australia on 28-29 Aug 1971.

It is indeed great to see some of the old events. Please acknowledge Fred Cowie who transferred my 8mm Film of the 2nd National into modern format and to Joe Vella who made available his early NSW records.
Priceless history.
